FM 1485- TxDOT in Montgomery County

In order to improve safety and mobility, TxDOT is planning on making road improvements in Montgomery county. The 5 mile corridor of FM 1485 corridor between SH 242 and Kidd Cemetery Road is going to be widened from a two lane road to a four lane road. Additional improvements include separating the opposing lanes of traffic with a raised median and the construction of a new, 10-foot side path for pedestrians. 

The project requires approximately 46 acres of new right-of-way which is anticipated to result in 40 displacements, including residences and commercial properties. TxDOT is likely to have one more public meeting in mid-2021. By late 2021, TxDOT predicts the project will receive environmental clearance which will allow for the acquisition of the required right-of-way.
